    Bizarre, sad, darkly funny and full of emotion.

    I’ve seen some of these comics online, and while I loved them then, having them in a physical format let the comics resonate further within me. I love this collection and plan on shoving it into the faces of everyone I know.

    I’m a long time fan of Zai’s comics and have been awaiting the arrival of my preorder for quite some time. This collection of comics is well worth the wait. These absurd comics capture the essence of hard to nail down feelings. They are so simple but poignant and make you realize how universal these mixed emotions are. I hadn’t read the long series “Bee Real” before and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would’ve purchased the book just for that alone.

    This book makes you take a deep breath in the wholly healing way that all great art does. I’m so glad to have a physical copy!! Zai captures somethings that it feels insane for someone else to understand and also so reassuringly human that you’re not alone in feeling it.

    A strange little collection of comics, but fun and engaging. I loved Zai's art style. Would definitely read more by this author. A strange little collection of comics, but fun and engaging. I loved Zai's art style. Would definitely read more by this author.
